Possible Issues with EP on our W2003 file server
Created: 24 Jan 2008 | Updated: 23 May 2010 | 8 comments
I am a new system administrator for a small company. I joined the company just as a new set of servers was being installed by a 3rd party.
We have three servers one of which is 'managing' EP, the second is an Exchange 2007 server, the third is a file and application server and has an active directory role.
When endpoint was originally installed on the file server we had many problems with the server 'disappearing' from the network and not being browsable. The suppliers removed endpoint claiming that the network threat protection was 'getting in the way' of the servers being able to correctly replicate and set up browsing.
I am unhappy about a server not having AV protection so I reinstalled Endpoint with AV and antispyware only.
We have been experiencing problems with conenction to the server disaperaing and returning. Files apparentlty not being available etc.
In Fact, many of the issues described at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923360/
All the files mentioned are of a later version than those indicated as causing the problems.
Any one got any ideas?
